The street is full of souvenir shops. You can find any kind of Chinese souvenir with various type, price, and material. Usually the cheaper items are in the front, and the more expensive is in the back of the shop

This is the center of the whole Dayan Ancient Town. There was Nazi performances during our visit. The performances were done by the real locals ( they are not dancers). Spend some time there! A place you cannot miss.

Sifangjie is bustling with people but this is also the least likeable place to me in Ancient Town as it became too commercialized in this square junction. Touted by some kids selling flowers and noisy bars and pubs selling beers are ridiculous prices.
